RW Writing Tests
We used Nero 188.8.131.52 for writing CDs in maximum RW writing speed for all the tested drives in 10x HS-RW media. All drive support fully the HS-RW writing standard, except from Yamaha 2100E which supports only 8x re-writing:
The Ricoh MP7200A gave back again the lower recording time (485) among the 4 tested drives, making it a very good performer. In addition, the drive's quick erase time is the lower among the contesters (51secs). The rest drives are simply slower...
- Packet Writing Tests
We used Ahead InCD v2.11 for all Packet Writing tests. We used Ricoh HS RW media and we formatted it. The formatting of the media takes around 10min. After formatting, we tested all four drives for their packet writing performance.
The formatted disc had 530mbs of free space. We copied a 403 MB file (403.147 kbs) from a Hard Disk (on the same PC as the writers) to the formatted RW media-using explorer (we dragged and dropped) we completed the test twice to eliminate possible time measurement faults and user errors:
The results show that the Ricoh MP7200A is without any doubt the king of the re-writing performance. The drive gave back the best writing/reading performance! That is very good news for people who are using packet writing in their daily tasks.
